Science

At ALS, we believe that science is a way of making sense of the natural world and that it is our responsibility to prepare students to be scientifically literate in the 21st century. 

    Our Science curriculum ensures that students are knowledgeable about the important concepts and theories of the three major branches of scientific study: earth, life, and physical sciences. Through inquiry-based instruction our students will be able to:
  • Think scientifically and use scientific knowledge to make decisions about real–world problems
  • Construct new knowledge for themselves through research, investigation and discovery
  • Become familiar with the natural world, and respectful of its unity, diversity, and fragility
  • Make informed judgments on statements and debates claiming to have a scientific basis
  • Reflect in an informed way on the role of science in human affairs
